It just won't start.

My '88 Honda Prelude is turning and cranking, but not catching. I have fuel, spark, air filter is clean, distributor rotor screw is in. Any suggestions???

Re: It just won't start.

Ignitor...it's a little box on the passenger side fender that acts like an ignition module.
Try that.
I just got mine to start by cleaning the ground wire contacts. Try that too.

Download a pdf service manual from prelude3g.

Oh, and pose your problem in the 3g section here. There are a few 3g experts here at pz who only lurk the 3rd gen section of the forum typically.

Btw, love the screen name sir.

Edit: I see you did a thread in the 3g section.
Hang on bro, others will chime in.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
